Still invaded by mud in the countryside

What doesn't add up in the tragedy of Cona

04 Jan 2017  |  Medium
The migrant reception center in Conetta, a district of Cona (Venice), housed in a former military base, has come under scrutiny following the death of Sandrine Bakayoko, a 25-year-old Ivorian woman who died of a pulmonary thromboembolism. Migrants, nearly 1500, protested loudly, blaming the delayed emergency response and poor living conditions. During the first night of protests, 25 operators from the cooperative Edeco, which manages the center, were held until law enforcement intervened. The latest news reports 100 migrants being transferred to other facilities in Emilia Romagna by the Viminale to ease tensions. However, there are inconsistencies in the timeline of Bakayoko's death, the conditions at the center, and the handling of the situation by the cooperative, which is under investigation for alleged mistreatment of migrants and producing false documents. The article raises questions about the adequacy of medical assistance, the overcrowding, and the long wait for asylum documents, suggesting a need for a deeper investigation into the migrants' protests and the cooperative's operations.

L’elezione del nuovo Papa e le controversie sul passato di Bergoglio

14 Mar 2013  |  Paolo Morelli
L'articolo esamina le controversie che circondano l'elezione di Papa Francesco, al secolo Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Viene messo in luce il suo passato di opposizione al kirchnerismo e alle politiche sociali in Argentina, così come le sue posizioni conservatrici contro l'aborto e i matrimoni gay. L'articolo si concentra in particolare sulle accuse di connivenza di Bergoglio con il regime dittatoriale di Videla negli anni '70, citando il lavoro investigativo del giornalista argentino Horacio Verbitsky. Verbitsky sostiene che Bergoglio avrebbe nascosto prigionieri politici e avrebbe avuto un ruolo nell'arresto e nella tortura di due sacerdoti gesuiti. L'articolo discute anche la reazione negativa di gruppi per i diritti umani e LGBTQ+ all'elezione di Bergoglio e presenta diverse prospettive sulla sua figura, rimanendo incerto sulla verità delle accuse.

Disinformare per esistere: la differenza tra vero e veritiero

18 Jan 2012  |  Paolo Morelli
L'articolo analizza la diffusione di notizie e immagini false o non verificate, in particolare quelle relative a presunti abusi commessi da soldati statunitensi nella prigione di Abu Ghraib in Iraq. Viene esaminata la provenienza di alcune foto incriminate, che sono state diffuse da vari siti web, tra cui express-news.it, noto per la pubblicazione di bufale. L'autore utilizza Google Translate e un motore di ricerca cinese per indagare la veridicità delle immagini e scopre che molte di esse provengono da fonti non affidabili o sono state manipolate per scopi ideologici. Viene citato il caso di Wayne Madsen, un giornalista che ha diffuso foto false di abusi, che in realtà provenivano da un sito pornografico. L'articolo mette in luce la difficoltà di distinguere tra notizie vere e veritiere in un'epoca di disinformazione diffusa.
